This year’s Remember A Charity Week runs from 7 to 13 September.
Remember A Charity Week is an opportunity for charities to come together and encourage more people to consider leaving gifts in Wills, after taking care of family and loved ones. As a member of Remember A Charity, we are taking part in this campaign designed to highlight the importance of making a Will and the value of gifts to charities in order to help future generations.
A short video introducing this year's Remember a charity in your Will week.The Wombles are warmly remembered for the way they supported each other and the wider community, and for their unfailing commitment to look after the world we live in. In such challenging times, who better to encourage the public to consider leaving a gift in their Will?
Pass on something wonderful
It's a common myth that you have to be wealthy to leave a gift in your Will to help us, but nothing could be further from the truth. After taking care of family and friends, even a small amount can make a big difference.Whatever the amount we're extremely grateful for any gifts left to us, as they will help us to continue to provide support today, tomorrow and every day.
Your kind support will really make a difference to us in supporting people with cancer, dementia and other conditions.Helen Tomes, Supporter Relations Officer, Cobalt
Gifts in Wills make up over a third of Cobalt's charitable income. Remembering Cobalt in your Will, you will help us to continue to improve health outcomes in years to come.
